United Against Torture Volunteer Information
Volunteers can help by coming to the office and participating in the daily activities (telephone calls, e-mail, organization of events) or from home with a Personal Computer and, if possible, internet access. The Coalition publishes a number of papers and documents that need to be researched and written, then edited and translated (to/from English, Hebrew and Arabic). Before any paper is published, extensive and thorough documentation work must be done. Help in any of these tasks would be greatly appreciated.
